Due to recent updates in security setting defaults across several major web browsers, the functionality of linking and embedding of library resources within blackboard has changed. 

Embedded library content will not display in Blackboard if browsers are left at default settings.  Click this link for instructions on displaying "mixed content" in Blackboard. 

Because it is unlikely that all users will take the time to change browser settings, we recommend that faculty configure all content to be opened in a new window, rather than embed.

To link to library resources, please ensure that the link is configured to open in a new window as shown below.
